Monday, Sainsbury’s, phone rings, tis Lundunn HQ, am I available for the 2016 North Sea/Atlantic installation programme? Well yes sir I am that, just got to make sure recent events don’t contravene the UKOOA medical guidelines for fitness to work. Fingers crossed on that one.
Fannit is grey and dark and wet and blustery today, the kids are still off school for the winter holidays and the shops are full of the little perishers, roll on mid-week when, all being well, they’ll all get back into the classrooms and leave the streets quiet for us grumpy old men.

Do not write laws with it
Do not think with it.

Right can’t be port but left just might.
Port, said right, is left you see,
And starboard-port-is wrong to me.”
